Just voted for Heron. Felt a bit sorry for him as he was the only one without a profile picture.

:lol:

Thank you.
It was my choice by the way. :thup:

It's not about me, it's about what I do to represent you. That's why I didn't want my picture. It hopefully breaks down barriers of it "being all about the egos" too. That's my hope.

Bit of a strange one mate if I am honest, people naturally like to put faces to names.

If Greg and Heron are on board helping to run things NUST is in great hands :thup:

Probably is strange, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. For years and years there have been accusations of egos and jobs for the boys and all that s***. Yet the successful groups have been those who've been relatively anonymous (AO, SP and WF).

It's not about whether I bring the change that makes the difference, it's that the difference is made.

Just my thought process :thup:

I understand it's a wider football issue, but there's a bit of a diversity issue in that list...

Good luck though Heron. I'll finally sort out my membership and vote.

Cheers mate. In what sense does it lack diversity? (Genuine question)
Everyone on the shortlist is a white man

You've got my vote Heza. I get why you've gone without a photo but I also think you should've put one up. I'd imagine you'll have enough support regardless but there'll be some weirdos who take umbrage at that.

If Heron and Greg’s manifesto includes a public flogging of Steve Wraith he has my vote.

Cheers mate. Cannot win half the time, it's just reducing the number of people who think you're a prick, there's always someone who thinks you're one  :lol:

I actually get along with him alright. I think he's coming away from it all now though.

We can still flog him though, right?

[What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.

Hope he gets a proper send off, I suggest a mock funeral around SJP.

In all seriousness if t***s like him have nothing to do with the trust other than being a paid up member, I’d be far more supportive and happier trusting NUST to represent me in the best interest of myself and likeminded fans who want what’s best for the club and don’t have any agendas or interests to serve first or at any point other than the fans and club.

Agreed, i am now far more interested all of a sudden now that that self serving baldy c*** isn't involved.

Thanks to everyone who voted for me. Sadly it wasn't to be. Maybe I should have listened to some of the advice...

Happy I stood by what I believed though :thup:

It could have gone worse. You could have gotten fewer votes than Paulie Belta.
